Starbucks Pop'zel Coffee Frappuccino® Blended Beverage

Summer is already here and it's one of the best seasons to bond with friends and family! To make summer more exciting and refreshing, Starbucks is introducing a new Frappuccino® flavor and will bring back a well-loved flavor from last year.

A returning favorite, the Roasted Marshmallow S'mores Frappuccino® Blended Beverage is flavored with vanilla, layered with smooth marshmallow whipped cream, indulgent chocolate sauce, and graham crumble. This delicious concoction is then finished with whipped cream and more graham crumble on top.

Get ready for an unexpected throwback as Starbucks brings together two of our childhood favorites—popcorn and pretzels—in one delectable drink. Pop'zel Coffee Frappuccino® Blended Beverage is blended with delicious popcorn and pretzel syrup and topped with real caramel popcorn and salted pretzel over whipped cream.

Both flavors will be available for a limited time only starting April 18.

“This summer, the iconic Frappuccino® blended beverages are inspired by our customers’ personalities: fun, creative and bold,” said Keith Cole, marketing head for Starbucks Philippines. “We have created beverages that match customers’ summer moods, handcrafted with flavors that blend sweet with savory or delight with the most exciting toppings”.

Starbucks VIA® Iced Coffee is a new kind of refreshment that is perfect during summer at home. With its flavor profile defined by hints of citrus and a caramelly-smooth finish.


For an exotic coffee flavor, here's the Starbucks Reserve® Nicaragua La Roca.

For their newest food offerings, they have Banana Chocolate Danish and Roast Beef Deli on Ciabatta Bread. Dig into this sandwich with slow-roasted beef, button mushrooms, tangy and sweet pickles, horseradish spread. It's a perfect sandwich if you need a fulfilling meal.

If you want a sweet option, try the Banana Chocolate Danish. It's a baked pastry filled with chocolate and banana.

Meanwhile, chocoholics out there will surely be pleased with the new 65% Dark Chocolate. This single-origin chocolate bar was sourced from the award-winning Malagos Chocolate from Davao. Every bar has 65% cocoa solids and has a distinct fruity flavor profile.


For My Starbucks Rewards® members, Starbucks Frappuccino® die-cut cards will be available in new colorways and can be bought for an initial activation fee of ₱1,000. Meanwhile, the new 'Stay Cool' card will be available for ₱300. Both will be in Starbucks stores starting April 18.
